Q: What size lift kit do you recommend?
A: Every cart owner's uses are different. Many people raise their golf carts just for looks, so the higher the better! Whether
yours is a lifted golf cart or stock is a matter of personal preference, as well as how you will be utilizing your cart. Naturally if your needs are for an off-road golf cart, you
want it to have additional ground clearance. We have lifts available on all models, from 4 to 8 inches - and up to 11" lifts for Club Car Precedents.
The A-Arm style lift kits are the premium method for raising your cart, as they provide the smoothest ride! You can see all the various choices in our accessories section.
Q: Which size wheels and tires do you recommend?
A: Our most popular sizes for lifted carts are 12x7 wheels with 23x10.5-12 tires, and 14x7 wheels with 23x10-14 tires. We also have gigantuous 16x7 wheels with 29x10-16 tires - but
your cart will need our "Monster" 11 inch lift kit to run those!
Our most common tires are 4-ply, but If you plan on taking your cart off-road where you might encounter thorns or sharp objects, then you might want to consider 6-ply tires.

Q: Can you custom paint a golf cart body for me?
A: While we aren‘t set up for painting in our shop, we have a couple of very competent & talented painters that we sublet custom paint work to - at very reasonable prices. (Please see
examples in the bodies & components section.)
Q: I see that you install stereos in golf carts. Where do you place them??
A: We can install stereos either in the existing golf cart dash (in most cases), or in an "overhead console" that mounts to the underside of the roof or top. But perhaps the cleanest
installation is done by adding a custom molded dash that is designed to house a stereo. It fits over the existing dashboard, and can include
wood grain trim. (See a
custom dash and stereo here.) Mounting the stereo unit in such a
way can also provide more protection from the outdoor elements.
The speakers are typically mounted on the cowl near your feet (opposite the forward/reverse switch) or over the rear fender wells.
Q: If I decide to have you modify my cart, how long will it take once I bring it to you?
A: Of course, that will depend on how much you want us to do to it,
as well as our work load at the time. Typically we can install a standard lift kit, wheels and tires in a day or two. Extended tops, stereos, rear seats,
motor upgrades, new bodies, etc., will usually entail a few days to complete. Actual working time can be shortened if we know in advance exactly which parts and accessories will be needed.
Q: Can you install new batteries in my golf cart?
A:Yes! We sell and install Trojan, Pacer, Continental or Interstate batteries at very competitive prices. We will also check and clean all battery cables, and verify that all connections
Q: Can I bring parts to you with my cart and have you install them?
A: You betcha! Feel free to bring your own parts and we will give you a price to install them.
What can you tell me about driving my cart on city
A: Municipalities and
counties have various guidelines, but many follow state
regulations. You'll want to check with your local police or
sheriff's department for specifics. But as an example,
if you plan to operate your cart on League City, Texas streets,
you'll want to read these
